Celebrating Summer

Hi Everybody

This is Lindsy again from Stannel.  I hope to inspire you with another view on the topic.

  1.  Summer!!

Summer reminds me of holidays!  They are so much fun.  Kids playing water games with balloons, drinking their mocktail with melons or pineapples while lying on their beachtowels, kids running around in their bathingsuits after they jumped in the swimmingpool,…  Life should be like that every single day, don’t you agree?  That’s why I chose fruity colors like Marta’s beautiful neon dress.  Noortje Prullemie shows us how to hack the Tinny dress from Straightgrain.  Melon, pineapple and cactus prints are a hype in Belgium.  How about where you live?

2)  Our differences are what make us the same

Our children grow up in difficult times.  On the one side they have all the luxury they desire with television, cell phones, tablets,  electic and sophysticated toys,…  On the other side there is so much pain and grief in the world.  My heart goes out to all the people and children who are suffering in any way because of war or terrorism.  It is so important to teach our children not to hate, not to discriminate other people whatever skincolor or religion they have. Let’s unite!  This is what ‘Kids Clothes Week’ stands for! We are bringing people together with our passion…sewing!

Why not use different cultures in our sewing projects.  Let’s also celebrate our differences.  An indian lining on a coral colored coat, some beautiful African fabric combined with a maxi skirt and a kimono cardigan are just one of the many cultural influences we can bring to our sewing projects!

I hope I gave you some creative ideas on using patterns, fabrics and styles.  You are more than welcome to visit my blog and feel free to leave a comment!
